Try your local hardware store, Home Depot, or Lowe's. Take one of the other bolts with you. At the NAPA store where I work we have a bolt and nut sizer. Places like those I've mentioned should as well and be able to match up your bolt no problem. -Jim

I went to two hardware stores and two auto part stores no one has the correct bolt ,the bolt itself has a the threads at the bottom with about 4 or 5 threads showing and then it has a barrel type covering on the rest of the threads I think it is made that way so that the gas doesn't leak past the bolts

I see. Sounds like a pretty unique bolt. See if you can get a part number from Subaru. If you have a NAPA store nearby ask them to try to changeover that part number to their NOE, BK, or RFD lines. I'm thinking NOE (NAPA Original Equipment) is your best bet. We can get some pretty oddball stuff through that line. HTH. -Jim

I was able to cross the part number over............to a PCV Grommet. Unfortunately that's the only thing, in our system that the part number crosses over to. Try Fastenal. They have a website. We frequently refer customers there as well. Good luck with this. HTH. - Jim
